help from fema, the federal emergency management agency. the homeland security secretary, janet napolitano, who's in new york city, says that's only just the beginning. but many residents of staten island which was inundated by the storm's tidal surge, say they're getting virtually no help yet. and their desperation is now turning to anger. cnn's brian todd is on the island. he's joining us live. brian, tell us what's going on. >> reporter: wolf, we're in the new dorf beach section cedar grove avenue. this place is still flooded out even after the waters receded. people just barely able to kind of wade through the water, try to get to homes and assess damage. you've got a church that's flooded out here to your left, my right. and our photo journalist can pan back over this way down marine way. look down here with just the debris and people trying to gather things and bring things out and clear their homes of all the wreckage. what we know now, wolf, is that the bodies of two young boys who were washed away from their mother during the storm have been found. they were found in a
, emergency supplies, and we have over 2,000 fema personnel that are on the ground right now. their job, now that we're moving out of the search and rescue phase, is to make sure that they are going out and talking to individual communities, so that people know exactly how they can get the help that they need. >> new jersey congressman frank palone was with governor christie today. he is with us now, he represents new jersey's sixth congressional district, which is a shoreline district, fronting both new york harbor and the atlantic ocean. sir, thanks very much for your time. i know you've been all over your district in the past couple of days. what kind of damage are you seeing along the coast and in the cities of your district? >> it's all kinds of damage. i mentioned union beach to you before. that's a place where maybe three or four blocks from the bay, from the rarington bay, the storm surge came in and the waves were pounding on top of the houses. so some house just washed away completely. others were pounded to rubble. i had never seen anything like that before. there are other places

of repairing our island. i'm going to convene a conference call later this morning with fema officials and with officials from the army corps of engineers and we'll invite every elected official from the towns and villages and the counties of the areas that i represent to get them on the call so we can begin that process. and also i'm going to call on -- send a letter this morning to congress urging first order of business they pick up when we return to session is an appropriations bill for fema and the army corps of engineers and the small business administration and any other federal agency that can be helpful in restoring some sense of normalcy to areas that have been so badly hit. but as i say, the very first priority has to be making sure that people are safe and making sure that we put people in safety and we deal with the devastation. >> congressman tim bishop on long island, thank you so much. good luck. >> thank you. >>> for the second day in a row, super storm sandy is halting trading on wall street. that is the first two-day weather related shutdown in more than a century. u

surge. meantime a big warning coming from the president of the united states. he made a visit to fema headquarters and he said the resources are in place to deal with the storm and he expects fast response to any damage once that storm does hit. but he added, people really need to be prepared. >> you need to take this very seriously, and follow the instructions of your state and local officials because they are going to be providing you with the best advise in terms of how to deal with this storm over the coming days. >> the president also held a conference call will governors and mayors that are in the storm's path. >> so emergency management officials, cnn's george how well is on the outer banks right now. you're feeling the effects of that storm in kill devil hills, george? >> we're also keeping in close contact with emergency management officials in their county. the latest from them. obviously the winds are strong out here. we're talking wind gusts from 40-mile-per-hour and i can tell you the plus is in effect right now. these wind gusts if you're not careful will not be back. al
have pre-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. we're making sure that food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that are going to be hardest hit. transportation is going to be tied up for a long time and probably the most significant impact for a lot of people in addition to flooding is going to be getting power back on. the fact is a lot of these emergency crews will not be able to get into position to start restoring power until some of these winds have died down. >> one of the events that the president skipped was this ohio rally with bill clinton where vice president joe biden stood in for him. >> folks, i know you're expecting the real president, the present president, reverend, i just want you to know, he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but, you know, he's doing the job a president should be doing.

, and you talk about the bipartisanship. we have seen how government has needed to step in by way of fema. romney has, you know, points of view in the primary, drudged up again by him saying fema is not necessary. then we talk about bipartisanship. you're seeing president obama standing right next to what was a number one surrogate for romney. so you know, in the end, has this natural disaster how kind of skewed or changed some of the opinions or sentiments about what romney has been saying about government not working, government being too intrusive? >> nobody's suggesting that governor christy still isn't indorsing and supporting governor romney. clearly, he has and continues to do so. the fact is -- of the matter is we don't want government, we want it to be efficient and positive and working for individuals, not against individuals. so governor romney never said we don't need fema. what he said it was the local and state governmental entities that were the first individuals in in a disaster. that's exactly true. >> let me say this, fredricka. let me say this as a member of the homelan
not loss of life. >> fema administrator craig fugate earlier this morning. >> we keep hearing the term perfect storm. perhaps it's overused but in this situation according to most of the forecast it could fit the bill because of a rare convergence of events that will make this next couple of days unlike any that the east coast has ever seen. windows have been boarded, store shelves cleared and residents evacuated. >> if you refuse to evacuate you're not only putting yourself at risk but also the first responders who will have to assist you. >> scenes we normally see on the gulf coast instead brought to the northeast by an unusual and potentially devastating mix of ingredients. first hurricane sandy. >> the rush to prepare for sandy is on. >> second her path. while storms moving up the coast typically drift out the sea the jet stream is forcing sandy into an almost unheard of left turn. >> we never seen this. this is unprecedented for a hurricane to take this kind of track. >> and that rare turn points sandy not only towards 60 million people but yet another storm. >> a northern storm c
a lot of money to help all these states and also to try to manage fema, which, as yet, is not engaged. it's more the immediate response is at the local level, the fema is for the longer. he has done okay. there is is no criticism of that. >> bill: i don't think anybody should be sniping at him or romney. romney the same thing. he has got to be sympathetic. he doesn't have any power to do anything. he has got to show his concern. they both cancelled some appearances and all of that i won't sniping. what i would say if i were cynical but of course i'm not you can discount that. >> you are little bow beep. going forward, tomorrow is a hybrid news day. you will still have storm stuff but the story will deintensify and the political stuff will come back. and then on thursday, both romney and obama will regain, you know, they will start to campaign again. looking forward, i don't see sandy as a factor. >> no, i don't. it might have marginal effects. it does show the president is presidential. people expect that in a national emergency. that's not really stuff. you might say that if you look
million still without power. this morning, president obama was briefed again on the situation by fema officials. yesterday, he spent four hours touring the damage and meeting with people in new jersey. in an emotional moment, a marina owner came to him in tears. he promised her she's going to get the help she needs. >> we are with here for you. and we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you've rebuilt. >> well, it's unprecedented timing. this is all happening just five days before the election. the latest round of nbc news wall street journal polls show the president leading in iowa, wisconsin, and new hampshire. but it is still very close. let me bring in washington post columnist dana millbank and molly ball. good morning. >> good morning. >> hi. >> let's start by talking about the president's response to the hurricane. a poll shows 78% view his response positively. what do you think, dana? is this helping him? >> well, i think it's sort of unseenly to try to gauge out who benefits from human tragedy. certainly, whoever is in
. that campaigning, is it too soon for that? i know we're getting notes that the fema administrator, craig fugate, will be updating the president throughout the day. but the visuals, you've seen, are devastating. every day, we learn more information about a new area, especially new jersey, that's been absolutely devastated. is it just too soon to be out there campaigning, for both men? >> i think it all depends on how they do it. the president said yesterday that he is addressing this minute by minute, and i like the fact that he said that his folk had to get back to the mayors and the governors within 15 minutes. clearly, i think he can do more than one thing at a time. again, we're coming down toward the end of the election. i think they both have to make their cases and i don't see anything wrong with that. >> elijah cummings, nice to see you. appreciate your time this morning. want to tune in tuesday night for cnn's live coverage of election night in america. our coverage begins at 6:00 p.m. eastern. >>> ahead on "starting point," look at this, a little girl, very upset. >> obama and mitt rom

have to be fema commander in chief? to harold's point, when he goes back, what kind of events can he do? >> right. >> chuck, obviously, these hurricanes are tricky politics. again, it sounds awfully cynical. people's lives are on the line. but the next four years, where this country goes, depends how the president handles it, how mitt romney handles it. we certainly saw september 15th, 2008, began a process that led to barack obama being elected. you go back to '92. we're florida guys. go back to '92. we all remember 41 was seen as mishandling. >> spokesperson for dade county, i'll never forget her, she gets on, where's the cavalry? it was like boy, there was your headline for the entire country. where's the cavalry? it was a rough moment. >> you talk about another bush, 2005, george w. bush, if you talk to people that worked for president bush, they will tell you the low point of their eight years, it wasn't iraq. it wasn't wmds. it wasn't the horror of all of that. it was katrina and being caught sleeping and feeling like they had abandoned people in new orleans. it impacted them in a
